Mid-year exam results – what you need to know

Exam results for most mid-year exams will be available online on the evening of Friday, 5 July 2019. 

Access your results by logging into myUC and selecting ‘Internal transcript and results’.

This is a period of high activity for the website so it may be slower than usual. If a final grade does not appear on your transcript, please contact the department/school concerned during normal business hours (9am-5pm).

Some College of Education courses run to a different schedule and results will be released as soon as they are available after 5 July.

If you need information about results and appeals. Visit UC’s Results and Appeals webpage>

Academic progress
UC monitors the academic progress of all students and academic transcripts are reviewed at the end of each semester to ensure students are on track to both succeed in their studies, and meet the professional requirements of their chosen degree.

Depending on the outcome of the review, you may receive an academic progress letter by email between 10 and 12 July. Please check your student email account regularly, especially at that time, to ensure you are receiving all important correspondence relevant to your future study at UC.

Take a look around Haere-roa: The home stretch

This week, UCSA’s Education Rep Charlotte Merrall takes us for a look around Haere-roa, the new student building, to see how construction’s going. We’re so close to the finishing line now! The UCSA Team move their office gear into the building on 5 July, and they’ll be operating out of the space soon after. By the time students are back on campus, they’ll be able to come over and check it all out.

For more information about Haere-roa, visit the UCSA’s website.

Take a look around Haere-roa: Club facilities

This week, UCSA’s Post-Grad Rep Katie Mills takes us for a look at some of the cool club facilities in the new student building Haere-roa. Inside you’ll find a club meeting room, printing facilities, and loads of bookable event spaces. Keep an eye out over the coming weeks for a peek inside the Ngaio Marsh Theatre, too (you’ll love it for shows, balls and other big events).
